It's "Official"

This church is blessed to have a great ministry staff of paid and volunteer directors. I can tell you already that I am having a great time working with them and can't wait for the months ahead! Let me introduce them.

Lead Worshipper
Jason Hinze has been in the Omaha area leading many into worship for a number of years. He is a well respected musician but known more for his caring heart and love for God. That heart and love shows whether in a worship service or in a one on one conversation. Jason will primarily be in Access and work closely with David Potter in anticipation of starting the Sarpy Campus in February. Jason is married to Courtney and they just had their first child the 10th of November!
Elementary Children's Director
Darla Bair has been involved in children's ministry since she was a freshman in high school. Over the years Darla has overseen ministries where children's lives were touched with the love of God. Whether in Thailand, New York or in a church plant or here at Christ Community, Darla loves seeing children discover the love, joy and hope that comes from Jesus. Darla is married to Chris and has a 10 year old daughter and a 5 year old son.
Preschool Children's Director
Liz Friesen will oversee our birth to preschool ministry. Liz has been actively involved here at the Old Mill campus ranging from coordinating MOPS [Mothers of Preschoolers] to being a story teller to our Wednesday night Cubbies. She too this as a wonderful opportunity for babies, toddlers and preschoolers to experience God's grace and love in a very tangible way. Liz is married to Jared and has three children 4, 3 and 1.
Technical Arts Director
Marc Birkey is a freshman in college who has demonstrated a serving heart for many years. Marc has been actively involved in giving sound, light and video support for youth and college ministries along with the five Sunday morning services. Marc is a well known by the church staff and is so appreciated for his willing spirit to communicate God's love in a clear and understandable way.

That is our paid staff for the Sarpy Campus.
Below are the names and positions for our volunteer directors.

Hospitality
This critical ministry is overseen by Fred and Deb Wohlenhaus. Fred and Deb will coordinate a team that will make sure that the minute someone drives on the the grounds until they leave that they will be greeted with a warm smile, a good cup of coffee, something to munch on and have any of their questions answered.
Roadies
Jason Hartig and Jim Kropenske will make sure that all the equipment from our trailer will be set up and packed up in a timely way. They will have a great team that loves to work behind the scenes so each person attending will feel at home.
Journey Groups
This is a major component of our adult ministry. Beth Siemens is the Journey Group coordinator. She will make sure that you have can get connected into an adult group that meets on a day/night of the week with others that are like minded. Tom and Becky Moates along with Bob and Janice Cummings will help coach and encourage the groups once they are up and running. Currently we have close to 80 adults involved in a journey group!
